Friday Already!

This week went by really fast for me!! I had a lot of things going on! The kids had a lot of tests this week in school. There was a photo shoot on Monday with the kids and their cousins, cub scouts on Tuesday, tests on Wednesday, Riding lesson with the kids and me and Ozzie on Wednesday, Thursday fun craft night at church, and today.....Camping with these three studs! Hubba Hubba! That last stud can sleep with me in my sleeping bag!! I hear it's supposed to get a bit chilly at night! Oh, uhm.....back to what I was doing......the fun crafty activity we had at church! We actually had a bunch of people show up! Jennifer and I have been planning this fun craft night for a month now. We had 15 woman sign up and we had 10 show up! I think that is pretty darn good!! We all made some really cool word blocks! Mercy went to work right away! They all had a few different word choices! They could do Spooky, Boo, Thanks, Joy, or Noel. I think everybody had fun. We started at 7 pm and we actually didn't leave the church until 9:45pm! I think it was a successful event! And I even got a picture of me working.......I do not like pictures of myself. Plus I have this horrible hair cut that I HATE! It won't ever do what I want it to and one side is cut different than the other. I can't wait for it to grow out. The fact that it rained on me before this picture didn't help either. Everyone worked together at figuring out where to put their bows and which letters looked best on which blocks! These two ladies are super great at tying bows! They tied all the bows!! Here are some of the finished products! I made a "Thanks" block for a girl who just had a baby! Which by the way is the most adorable little baby girl!! I really love the way it turned out.....it's kinda sad I am giving it away......Barton made one for a lady who couldn't make it. He even signed the back!Maybe I should sign the back of the "thanks" I made!! Hahaha!It's amazing how everyone's turned out so different! And I really liked them all! Jennifer did two different set of blocks. This one is the one she did for herself! It turned out super cute. And yes Jenn, I had to use this picture!! But never fear, There is a good one of me too!! I think this activity gets two thumbs up!! Now, I am off to a two day three night camping trip in a tent with two boys and my husband.....ugh......Lord please don't let it rain on us!

Hey, I was wondering if Mercy has been coming and if she would be interested in some stake activity. What can I do to help with that situation? Hope you are having fun on your campout, but let me know, please. Thanks.

What a fun craft activity...and they all turned out so nice, too. I always like seeing pics of you. I think your hair looks cute. It frames your face beautifully. I'm wanting a new hair style some day soon, too.

I hope you're enjoying a nice camping trip with your men folk. It snowed here last night and is supposed to snow again this week. :)

That looks like such a fun time! Our church has a craft night each week in the wintertime but they mostly do greeting cards. I'll have to run this one by them. I love how they all turned out!

Hope you had a good camping trip and that it didn't rain on you!!!!
